1. Reference Correlations of the Thermal Conductivity of Ethylene and Propylene
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 8/9/2016
Authors: A. Koutian, Marc J. Assael, Marcia L Huber, Richard A Perkins
Abstract: New, wide-range reference equations for the thermal conductivity of ethylene and propylene as a function of temperature and density are presented. The equations are based in part upon a body of experimental data that has been critically assessed for ...

2. Measurement Challenges and Metrology for Monitoring CO2 Emissions from Smokestacks ‹ Workshop Summary
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1201
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/20/2016
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, Rodney A Bryant, Tamae M Wong, James R Whetstone, Eric Harman, Woong Kang, Keith A Gillis, Hsin-Hung Lee, Iosif I Shinder, Liang Zhang
Abstract: On April 20-21, 2015, NIST hosted a workshop that, through measurement science, enabled the owners of stationary sources (primarily the electric power industry) and their regulatory agencies (federal and state) to better characterize greenhouse gas ( ...

3. An Experimental and Kinetic Modeling Study of N-dodecane Pyrolysis and Oxidation in a Flow Reactor
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 8/31/2015
Authors: S. Banerjee, Rei Tangko, David A Sheen, Hai Wang, Craig Thomas Bowman
Abstract: N-dodecane (n-C12H26) is a straight chain alkane that forms an important constituent of surrogate blends for common aviation fuels such as JP8 and Jet-A. The current study investigates n-dodecane pyrolysis and oxidation kinetics in the intermedia ...

4. Kinetics of the Reactions of H and CH3 with n-Alkanes: Experiments with n-Butane and a Reevaluation Based on a Combustion Model Reaction Network Analysis
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/16/2015
Authors: Jeffrey A Manion, David A Sheen, Iftikhar Ahmad Awan
Abstract: Presented is a combined experimental and modeling study of the kinetics of the reactions of H and CH3 with n-butane, a representative aliphatic fuel. Abstraction of H from n-alkane fuels creates alkyl radicals that rapidly decompose at high tempe ...

5. Interrogating the Carbon and Oxygen K-edge NEXAFS of a CO2-dosed Hyperbranched Aminosilica
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 12/19/2014
Authors: Laura Espinal, Martin L Green, Dean M DeLongchamp, Watcharop Chaikittisilp, Jarod Chrystopher Horn, Miles Sakwa-Novak, Cherno Jaye, Daniel A Fischer, Nicholas Brunelli, Christopher Jones
Abstract: Near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy was used to study the adsorption of CO2 in a hyperbranched aminosilica (HAS) compound, a porous solid state material with great potential for carbon capture applications. After dosing a ...

6. Vapor-phase (p, , T, x) behavior and virial coefficients for the (methane + propane) system
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/12/2014
Authors: Mark O McLinden, Markus Richter
Abstract: The (p, ρ, T, x) behavior of three (methane + propane) mixtures was measured with a two-sinker magnetic suspension densimeter over the temperature range of (248.15 to 373.15) K with pressures up to the lesser of the dew point pressure or 6 MPa. ...

7. A thermodynamic investigation of the cellulose allomorphs: cellulose(am), cellulose I¿(cr), cellulose II(cr), and cellulose III(cr)
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/11/2014
Authors: Robert Nathan Goldberg, Jacob Schliesser, Ashutosh Mittal, Stephen R Decker, Ana Filipa L.O.M. Santos, Vera L.S. Freitas, Aaron A Urbas, Brian E Lang, Christian Heisse, Maria D. M. C. Ribeiro da Silva, Brian F Woodfield, Rui Katahira, Wei Wang, David K Johnson
Abstract: The thermochemistry of samples of amorphous cellulose, cellulose I, cellulose II, and cellulose III was studied by using oxygen bomb calorimetry, solution calorimetry in which the solvent was cadoxen, and with a Physical Property Measurement System ...

8. Reference Correlation of the Viscosity of n-Heptane from the Triple Point to 600 K and up to 248 MPa
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/5/2014
Authors: E.K. Michailidou, Marc J. Assael, Marcia L Huber, Ilmutdin Magomedovich Abdulagatov, Richard A Perkins
Abstract: This paper contains new, representative reference equations for the viscosity of n-heptane. The equations are based in part upon a body of experimental data that has been critically assessed for internal consistency and for agreement with theory when ...

9. Thermal decomposition kinetics of the thermally stable jet fuels JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 4/3/2014
Authors: Raina V. Gough, Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The global thermal decomposition kinetics of JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900 were studied. Decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 °C in stainless-steel ampule reactors. At each temperature, the extent of decomposition as a function o ...

10. Determination of Trace Sulfur in Biodiesel and Diesel Standard Reference Materials by Isotope Dilution Sector Field Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/14/2013
Authors: Steven J Christopher, Stephen E Long, Renata Amais, Joaquim N¿ga
Abstract: A method is described for quantification of sulfur at low concentrations on the order of 10 µg g-1 in biodiesel and diesel fuels using double isotope dilution and sector field inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ID-SF-ICP-MS). Closed vessel ...
